MusicK8Kids.com/K8 KidTunes Privacy Statement
Your Information Is Protected
We realize how important your privacy is to you, and it's important to us, too. That is why MusicK8Kids.com and Plank Road Publishing do not sell, trade, or in any way disseminate personal information you enter on our web sites to any outside party.
Any personal information provided voluntarily by customers/visitors to MusicK8Kids.com or its affiliated web sites is used for internal purposes only by Plank Road Publishing, publisher of MusicK8.com, Music K-8 magazine, and Recorder Classroom magazine. The information is kept strictly confidential.
We do not send unnecessary email messages, or "spam."
We do not collect personally identifying information about you without your knowledge or permission. We do, however, use an external analytics app to gather non-identifying statistical information (see below). This information helps us with web design decisions and allows us to gauge what type of information is most popular with or useful to visitors. In short, it helps us make the web site more useful to you.
MusicK8Kids.com encourages you to get permission from your parents before sending any personal information about yourself (such as your name or your e-mail address) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Without these cookies, you will not be able to use this site as intended. These are session cookies, meaning that they are deleted from your computer as soon as you quit your browser or after a certain period of inactivity.
Google Analytics / Other Google Services
We use the online advertising program Google AdWords and the Google Remarketing technology, both operated by the company Google Inc.
For measuring conversion with Google AdWords, a conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on an advertisement delivered by Google ("Ads"). Conversion tracking cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Google uses a different cookie for each Google AdWords customer, and there is no consolidation of the cookie data with other data. If you click on one of our Ads and proceed to a page equipped with a conversion tag and the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion is documented. With the help of the conversion tracking cookie we see the total number of conversions and are able to review the performance of our Ads.
When you click on one of our Ads, a Google Remarketing cookie is placed. This cookie helps to serve our Ads to you at a later time when you browse pages of the Google content network. Remarketing cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification.
Google cookies are those beginning "__ut," "_ga," "_gid," and "_gat"

GoDaddy, from whom we obtain our security certificate, sets cookies wherever the GoDaddy secure site logo is shown.
In the Video Network, the Help Videos page, Video Sample page, School Music Matters Video Resources page, and elsewhere that let you view embedded YouTube videos, YouTube may set cookies.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org or Cookies & You. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work. On our web site, for example, you would not be able to log in to your account, and you would not be able to purchase from our store.
We will never send your child e-mail advertisements, nor will we contact your child by e-mail unless we are responding to a question or comment initiated by your child. In fact, we will not ask your child to provide us with his or her e-mail address.
We will never sell or trade your e-mail address, or any information we collect from you, to anyone.
Your family's use of this site is dependent upon your having accepted these terms. In addition, our web site contains links to other web sites which we believe may be of interest to you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these web sites.
Due to the changing nature of the Internet, this policy may be changed at any time at Plank Road Publishing's discretion.
